Fund Development Council Image

Members of the Fund Development Council form a network of peer-to-peer fundraisers who are the leadership committee for the Columbia College Fund. They focus on soliciting leadership-level gifts for the Fund as well as help the Dean think through overall strategy. The work is critical to growing the pipeline of $1,500+ John Jay level donors to the Fund. The FDC holds official meetings three times per year. They partner with staff to provide coordinated outreach to leadership donors and prospects. They provide $2-3 million in revenue to the College Fund annually.
